  9. 9. 9 9:00 am – 10:00 am: The Rule of Thirds Collaboration -- Find the focal point (s) 9
  10. 10. 10 6 Techniques to Enhance the Focal Point in an Image A focal point can be virtually anything ranging from a person, to a building, to a mountain, to a flower etc. Obviously the more interesting the focal point the better – but there are other things you can do to enhance its power including: Position – Place it in a prominent position – you might want to start with the rule of thirds for some ideas. Focus – Learn to use Depth of Field to blur out other aspects in front or behind your focal point. Blur – If you really want to get tricky you might want to play with slower shutter speeds if your main subject is still and things around it are moving. Size – making your focal point large is not the only way to make it prominent – but it definitely can help. Color – using contrasting colors can also be a way of setting your point of interest apart from it’s surroundings. Shape – similarly contrasting shapes and textures can make a subject stand out – especially patterns that are repeated around a subject. Keep in mind that a combination of above elements can work well together. Lastly – don’t confuse the viewer with too many competing focal points which might overwhelm the main focal point. Secondary points of interest can be helpful to lead the eye but too many strong ones will just clutter and confuse. 10
